Revolution Books is the bookstore about the world and for a radically new world. RB is a site of critical thinking like nowhere else: where people find the books and engagement with why the world is the horror it is today, and where people can discover the revolutionary way out of this madness, engaging with the path-breaking work of the revolutionary leader Bob Avakian and the movement for revolution. RB is needed more than ever.

Art & Culture...Dissent & Ferment...
and Carrying Forward the Revolution Toward Communism

Join us on March 13 and March 20 for a 2 part discussion of an article by Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party on the Cultural Revolution in China (which lasted from the mid 60s to the mid 70s when China was a genuine socialist country).  This article, based on an interview of Avakian by Michael Slate, goes deeply into the complex situation and problems which were facing the Chinese Revolution, and how by launching the Cultural Revolution Mao broke with the Soviet model in order to address these challenges. The article takes up the aims, methods and contradictions of this cultural revolution including on questions of the role of art and artists, as well as the struggle in society in general during the GPCR.
